It is pretty good for the money but there's so many vegetables and little meat in dinners. One of the orders were wrong and saw when we got home unfortunately. And ordered egg rolls instead got spring roll. First time so we didn't know. Was pretty quick

This is the best Chinese restaurant my husband & I have ever been to! The food is outstanding & service was friendly even at the end of their day. It was also just a short couple blocks to walk from the Amtrak station during our layover. I wish they were in MY town!

Really loved the walnut prawns and the sweet and sour chicken. Both came out crispy like it's suppose to be compared to other places I've been to. Didn't give 5 stars because we called ahead of time and was given a time it would be ready. Upon being seated and told the waitress we called ahead, had to wait additional 15 minutes for the food to come out.

This is a Chinese restaurant with a great bar to hang out and watch games at. They have the cheapest drinks in Martinez. You have to try the owners homemade hot mustard if you get the Chinese food.

I've been going to Sunflower Garden since 1991 at their older location. This is my favorite Chinese restaurant in the world! The food is always hot and fresh, the restaurant is clean, and the staff are very attentive to the customers' needs. I highly recommend this location!

Talk about authentic Chinese food! Having grown up with a Chinese step-father, I am very picky about my Chinese food. Most of the restaurants around here are more Americanized Chinese. Sunflower Garden serves more traditional food and if there is something you want that is not on the menu, the owner, Sandy will make it for you. Their food doesn't have MSG. It is fresh, flavorful and filling. We love eating here because it means we don't have to go to Chinatown in Oakland of SF. It is worth the trip to Martinez!

Got food to go. Basic stuff: shrimp chow mein, beef with vegetables, sweet & sour pork. Odd flavor to the food, not sure what it was. Bitter taste tho. Maybe six pieces of shrimp. Talk about disappointing. Beef was good but veg variety was underwhelming and included no mushrooms or bamboo shoots. Nothing surprising with the pork or sauce. Will not be a repeat customer.

The food at this restaurant is comparable to any of the top China Town Restaurants in The City. First course should be Home made pot stickers, or try a scrumptious soup. They offer a wide selection of mouth watering entrees....favorites include, Sweet and pungent chicken, mu-shu pork, salt and pepper fish, honey walnut prawns, Mongolian beef , General chicken, sesame beef, just to name a few........Great Chinese food in the East Bay.

Terrific food, friendly and attentive staff. This is our go to Chinese restaurant in downtown Martinez. We always try new items when we go(except Pepper steak that is a must get for us) and have never been disappointed by a new selection. It is a little bit more expensive then other Chinese places in the area but well worth it both for the food and atmosphere.

My wife and me had lunch there today and were very satisfied with all the food, service and atmosphere. Ordered a beer, and it came with a cooled glass - a nice addon a man can have. Keep it up and I wish many business owners of restaurants follow this pattern.

The stff are friendly but the food was not good. The food was bland, oily, and a few dishes were terribly sweet. Also the rice was soggy which is a total dealbreaker for a Chinese restaurant as far as I'm concerned. The only OK item was the Chow Mein. I've eaten at a lot of Chinese restaurants in the East Bay and this one did not live up to my expectations. I ordered enough to eat the next day but left most uneaten because I couldn't stomach eating it again.
